certainly beat that drum. the question is whether it's resonating. we have a new cnn poll that came out over the last 24 hours in 15 battleground states that they are watching, and it shows that mitt romney leads the president right now 51% to 43%. so is this message not resonating? >> well, you know, i think the reality is we really mostly focused on whether people are resonating with their life and are they doing better off now, and it's a tough time. leading the country out of a recession, near depression, isn't easy. but we really have to say who's got the right answers. and is so we'll keep drilling home what the president is doing and keep reminding peoplehat smorm promising to go back to the bad old days, and there's absolutely nothing in his record that shows that he can do the sort of work that the president has done. mitt romney was 47th out of 50 states in massachusetts in job creation when he was governor. he's been an outsourcer in chief who has never shown an ability to really create hardworking jobs here in america. and so we'll keep making the case. i think the president's ma
